Having problems with your 1994 Mazda Protege ?
'94 Protege's auto trans: no overdrive, poor automatic upshifting
\015 I'm from Hawai'i. My '94 Protege's automatic transmission either needs to be manually upshifted or needs to start from the 2nd gear position to get from low to 3rd, and there is no overdrive. The OD (HOLD) button on the shifter seems to work because the 'HOLD' light works and it will downshift to 2nd gear from 3rd when the button is pressed with the shifter in the '2' position. The trans is not slipping, low on fluid, or showing any other problems. I posted about this situation earlier, stating that I think it's an electronic switch or connector, but I'm unfamiliar with this car's transmission and what to look/test for. Can anybody please help me troubleshoot/fix the problem? Much mahalo!\015
Suggestion try to check if the release bearing of the transmission is still ok and check also the transmission oil level and if you need to change the transmission oil.
